The companies will be based out of the Jordanian pavilion organized by the Jordanian Exporters Association (JEA). The industrial companies taking part operate in various foodstuff sectors.

In a statement Saturday, JEA CEO Ahmad Khodari said Jordan's participation in the event indicates the industrial sector's persistence on being present at all international economic events that could help find new customers and markets to raise the value of Jordanian exports to global markets.

Khodari added that the exhibition constitutes a strong opportunity for Jordanian industrial companies to promote their products, especially after the Covid-19-pandemic-induced difficult conditions that hit the global exhibition industry, which was unavoidably suspended due to the crisis.

He said the JEA seeks to enable Jordanian companies to learn about the latest manufacturing technologies at the exhibition, in addition to introducing high quality Jordanian industrial products to exhibition visitors.

To better promote Jordan's industries globally, Khodari said the JEA's new board of directors is mulling plans to ensure the continuous presence of Jordanian industrial products at various specialized fairs and export markets, especially in the US and EU, and is searching for new destinations to expand its geographical reach.

The JEA, established in 1988, has pledged to provide the appropriate support for Jordanian industrialists to export their products, as well as ensuring adequate services to contribute to developing Jordan's industrial exports, and offering a suitable environment for the exchange of export expertise, he added.

Khodari said that stimulating Jordanian industrial exports is the fastest solution to achieving economic growth by increasing production and investment in the industrial sector and creating more job opportunities.
